Service... Mikey was enthusiastic and entertaining. We loved the energy he exuded. The morning show was broadcasted to basically its entirety on the Lido deck. Big buzz kill. If I wanted to hear their conversation or presentation I would’ve gone. It interrupted the jams by the pool. There were never enough bar tenders. On the Vista they walked around and were readily available but not so much on the Sunshine. The dinner service was slow and nobody refilled our drinks freely. It had a very unorganized feel. At one point we ordered a vodka rockstar, received the vodka on the rocks and the rockstar arrived separately 15 minutes later.
Either the sea was super calm or our Captain was the king of the ocean. We never felt the ship move. It seemed to glide along and never felt rough. It was absolutely incredible!
Security- ugh! There was an incident in the main pool where a kid was bullying in a very obvious manner. He shoved several kids under. He grabbed my son by the neck. The life guard blew his whistle. My man had to tell the kid to stop. Then another man actually jumped into the pool after he observed the kid spitting in the faces of 3 other kids. The man pulled the kid out by his life vest. Yeah entire crowd clapped and cheered as security did very little to help. It was totally pathetic. That mans vacation was inconvenienced because the parent or security team basically sucked.
The food—- omg! It was pretty good when you could find some! How about there’s no food available in between the lunch and dinner change over. The Guys Burger joint was the only thing open and if you didn’t want a burger... you could try the deli or pizza place. You can imagine the lines for either of those, so you’re somewhat forced to do room service. There was very little open and they’d close one of the buffets... so that line was stupid long. In short- you need more food options available at all times during the daytime. The cool thing about a cruise is making your own itinerary. So that was frustrating. The Mongolian bar was awesome if you had 40 min to wait for your meal... I was not impressed by the food options or service to say the least.

Amber CoveBeautiful resort area with swim up bar. Cool shops. We did the Ocean World dolphin encounter. It was a big hit even though our dolphin max was stubborn and needed some training.View All 657 Amber Cove Cruise Port Reviews
